Apache Attack Helicopter Production Line Ramping Up for Block III

Paris Air Show 2011

It’s been called the savior of ground soldiers for decades, and now the first of a new breed of Apache AH-64D helicopters is about to roll off Boeing’s assembly line in Mesa, Ariz. The Block III features a new power plant, new main rotor blades made of composite materials and a more powerful on-board computer system to help pilots remotely fly unmanned aircraft and streamline maintenance. With more planned upgrades and improvements on the drawing board, the Apache attack helicopter will be a force to be reckoned with well into the year 2040.
